Panchali - 27th May 2022 : 6.00 PM @ JSS Auditorium



Panchali – An epitome of femininity & feminism:

Born of the sacred fire, She is no ordinary woman. Destined to walk the unbeaten path, this heroic princess of Mahabharata is renowned for being an enigmatic woman of substance. Beauty with brains, acclaimed for her loveliness with a granite will, Panchali was a fiery woman who knew her mind, could assert her will, she was bent on vengeance yet compassionate & generous too. It is little wonder that with a striking personality like thunder & lightning, she is no way less than her heroic husbands in strength, spirit, valour & virtue.  Panchali’s story is a saga of suffering and disgrace – a meteoric rise and a fateful loss, humiliation unheard of and a pledge of revenge, all culminating in a bloody war—her ordeal seemed never-ending. Yet she stands up to it all—never succumbing, never breaking. One of the most unforgettable characters of the Mahabharata, Panchali shows what a woman is capable of.

NRUTYA SCHOOL OF ART, the brainchild of Guru Natyakalaratna Smt Gayathri Chandrashekar, established in 2009, follows the Vazhuvoor style of Bharatanatyam. Religiously following the tenets of her Guru Kalaimamani Smt K J Sarasa, Guru Smt Gayathri trains students ranging from 6 years to adults. Her belief is that classical dance is a powerful ally for not just improving our physical fitness, but it can also help improve our emotional, cognitive and social attributes. The creative expression of dance can bolster communication skills and inspire dynamic relationships.
Fostering social interactions and cooperation, inculcating discipline & imbibing values via the artform, the camaraderie of working in a group and last, but not the least; the art of communicating through gestures and actions are what makes classical dance a holistic experience. And this truly is what Gayathri aspires to impart and educate her disciples with, at her dance school.
